Murder of an Kntlre Family, and the
House lturued With the Ilodles In It.
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 20. It is learned
hero to-day that the family of o'ght per
sons, supposed to havo been accidentally
burned to death in Knox County, a month
since, wcro murdered; tholr throat having
been first cut from ear to oar. The family,
whose name was Poe, had two neighbors
whoso reputation was not of tho best,
and on this account tbey fc-bado thorn
entering their house. These neighbors, a
man and woman, though not man and wife,
bad an illegitimate child, n boy, about ten
years old. They lived rome thirty yards
from Poe's bouse, and becoming .enragod
because of being refused social recognition,
planned the damnable plot of murdering
tho entire family. Tno bo , sutlering un
der a severechastlsement from his reputed
father, now tolls the whole story. Ht
says his mother was talking about
tho matter for several days, and that ie
culminated during a night when Mr. Poe
was absent from home, and that whe-i his
father and mother left home for Poo's
house th y forbad o his goin with them,
but that ho slipped along without their
knowledgo, and Baw them enter tne house.
Tho family, all of whom were females,
wero all asleep in ono room, and his father
with a razor cut tho t hi outs of each from
ear to car, while his mother pick
ed the bodies up, placed them in the
middle of the floor, piled the contents of
two beds on them, and then set fire to
them and tho house, and that tho poor,
helpless little baby screamed until the
flames smothered it. Tho man and woman
have not as yet been arrested, but a
sewing - machine, bedi, aud several
other articles, reco;nizad as belonging
to the murdered family, were found
beneath the bouse of the accused parties.
There is no doubt of their guilt, and excite
ment has reached an intensity bordering
on frenzy, so that it is moro than probable
the State will be suvod the exuenso of a
trial. Further particulars to-night shed
additional light on the Knox County hor
ror, and mane it one of the darkest and
most damnable crimes ever commltt d in
the Stato, not excepting the Ashland affair

still continues. Captain' Pharr, ownor of

to crush out the attempt to orgnnlze tho

local newspaper which Ims generally been
regarded ns representative of the labor In
interests here, calls upon the Knights of
Labor to halt in this matter. It says: "It
Is entiroly unnecessary to organize the field
hands of the country Into labor societies,
even if such combination purports to bo In
self-defense. The purpose of the combina

capital. There Is not in the lilstorv of this
country sn organization of planters or farm

In the nature of thincs such n combination
cannot be effected. In no other Industry Is'
